It’s our honor to announce that Zuora has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2018 in two categories, for demonstrating exemplary professional leadership in cybersecurity.

Pritesh Parekh, VP, CSO for Zuora, was acknowledged as CSO of the Year, in good company with security leaders from Bank of America, Thomson Reuters, State of Missouri, and Lower Colorado River Authority.

“Professional Award finalists, epitomize the industry’s tireless efforts to protect valuable information from cyber criminals,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “We are proud to recognize Zuora VP CSO Pritesh Parekh for his outstanding achievements and contributions to our industry.”

And our Zuora security team was also recognized as a finalist in the Best Security Team category alongside Bank of America, Humana, and Idaho National Laboratory.

“The SC Award’s Professional Award category represents the highest caliber of leadership in the cybersecurity industry,” added Illena Armstrong of SC Media. “As a finalist, the Zuora security team has shown unique creativity and passion in their approach to addressing and combating even the most challenging cybersecurity issues.”

“In an age where threats are ever-evolving, it is reassuring to know that one true constant is the commitment of dedicated information security professionals, as best exemplified by our SC Media Awards finalists,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “These inspiring innovators have set a high bar for their industry peers, as they continue to protect the world from attacks and vulnerabilities that imperil our security, privacy, and digital infrastructure. The year 2017 brought us WannaCry ransomware infections, the rise of cryptominers, and bugs like Broadpwn and BlueBorne that affected billions of devices. Whatever threats rear their ugly heads in 2018 and beyond, our finalists will be ready to act.”

Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on April 17, 2018 in San Francisco.
